When I checked in I told him I preferred upstairs, he puts me in the basement. at 11 o'clock at night I'm tired I take a shower and I get into bed only to find that it smells like the mattress is mildewed. I couldn't take the smell so I had him put me in another room which was just... More

Room was clean and had everything we needed. Got it for $15 cheaper on motel6.com than hotels.com! Plenty of large vehicle parking in back and a Burger King with playroom right next door! Knob on tub faucet had a sign that said "pull" to turn on....not put your back into it! Special note....this place is riddled with stairs! Our big... More

Clean, decent, no major issues, cheaper than a lot of the local competition. Allows pets on smoking floor...no extra charge. Modern enough feel. Flat screen TV in the room. Beds were fine. Pull down under the faucet to get the shower to work.

We were over charged first off, tried to tell the owner I can get a cheaper rate on their website, he argued with me that he just changed his rate. He couldn't understand that he should honor his rates on his website. That should have been my sign! The heat to the room was shut off, so the room temp... More

I am a transporter and have a need for a nice room and quiet place to sleep and above all, room to park a large RV. This motel is great, brand new and they did a great job designing it to fit our needs. The staff was great and friendly. Highly recommend this one.!!

We stay at this property at least twice a year and this trip, we spent a week there. The prices are reasonable, the rooms are clean, and the folks who manage this place are very helpful. It is a Motel 6 so you do not have all the amenities but it is quiet, the beds are comfy, there are restaurants... More

As with many Motel 6 facilities, this one is in poor shape. It was only converted to a Motel 6 within the past 2 years so I expected it might be ok-I was wrong. The bed was ok but the spread had a cigarette burn in the middle of it. The worst thing was that it was typical MN cold... More

If you can't wait to stay in a place that makes All other accommodations look superior by comparison, stay here. If you want to snuggle your toes along cold linoleum (not even a throw rug on the bare floor) at the end of your day of driving, stay here. If you want to nod off to the sounds of rambunctious...

The location was fine, but our bathroom was never cleaned, the tub had a bathroom ring and the toilet had hair all around the base of it. The bed spread was stained and didnt even want to touch that. The desk person was somewhat pleasant whenever he was there. We will never stay at another Hotel 6.
